  1. On the Bengals end zone fumble. Washington declined the penalty thus making the play no longer a change of possession nor a scoring play. How did the play get to review then? Did (1) a coach challenge, or (2) did Rivera decide to accept the penalty and trigger the review, or (3) is a play still considered a scoring play even though an accepted penalty wiped it out? If it is #1 or #2, what is your source of that information? Thanks!

  2. Let me try that again. I made an error;

  3. The original call on the field is what determines if this is a reviewable play. The call was a fumble, recovered by the defense, then fumbled again back into defensive end zone where a safety was called. Fouls are determined after the facts are straightened out (i.e. instant replay).

  4. @Anthony the ruling on the field is what determines whether a play is reviewable or not.  The ruling was that the offense fumbled, recovered by the defense in the end zone.  It was taken out of the end zone then fumbled again, but recovered by the defense in their own end zone, which results in a safety.

    The applicable rule is below:

    ARTICLE 2. REPLAY OFFICIAL REQUEST FOR REVIEW

    Only the Replay Official or the Senior Vice President of Officiating or his or her designee may initiate a review of a play:

    When points are scored by either team
    and when on-field officials rule: an interception by an opponent, a fumble or backward pass recovered by an opponent or that goes out of bounds through the opponent’s end zone,

    Such plays may be reviewed regardless of whether a foul is committed on the play that, if accepted, would negate the on-field ruling.
